  1. I use modified park mostly. Also deep HC but I get more emi with deep HC and need to lower sensitivity to 80-88 . Park is quiet and deep and I can run max sensitivity
  2. I have a pair have been using them for several weeks. I love the sounds the tones through the headphones sound fantastic however I do wish they fit a little more snug on my head they feel a little bit loose but they're very very comfortable and they fold up nice
  3. Will you have any extra wsa2xl headphones? If not how soon will you be getting more in do you know?
  4. Here is a couple more pics to show that if you wanted to make it more stock like original it's easy to do instead of putting a rubber washer and just get you a nylon washer you can get the three quarter inch with a quarter inch hole 1/8 inch thick and use it in place of the washer and it still leaves plenty of room and it pushes that lower rod over snugly against the washer when the opposite side and that way it would behave exactly as the original would except for it would be a better lower rod with no flex and two and a half inches more length.
  5. I super glued that bushing in as it fits perfectly flush on each side. If you do that then you can go ahead use your cone fitting that came with the stock Deus coil hardware. It would be set up exactly like the stock lower rod one washer with a cone on one side pushing the lower shaft over against the washer if anyone is afraid of their warranty being voided.
  6. This is for using the simplex or Legend carbon fiber lower rod with a Deus or Deus 2. This is all you need, a nylon spacer 2 thick rubber washers and Sand each side of the lower rod down just a little bit so that there's plenty of space on each side where it's not rubbing the inside of the coil ears. This lower rod not only is stiffer because it's carbon fiber but it's also lighter weight, and 2.5 in longer which for me eliminates the need for a tall man center rod. So if you're swinging the larger coils you won't get that whipping effect of the lower rod flexing back and forth after the swing. This works perfectly this should have been the lower shaft that came with the new detector but for $35 and about $2 in parts it works much better than the original. I added this so I could use it on the beach and in the water on the Gulf Coast because the original shaft was causing wear issues were sand was getting in and rubbing the inner coil ear. no matter how tight I tightened it that coil would still move a little bit because it's only a one washer design. This setup uses 2 washers, it is plenty tight enough to keep coil from moving. It's the same thing as using the new Anderson rod where you have two washers and it just stiffens up the coil so much better.
  7. I had coil bolt as tight as I could without thinking it would break. I checked coil for tightness several times and it was stiff but still moved a little . Enough to cause wear. Sand gets trapped in there and you have to remove coil bolt to wash it all out which I did every time. So I bought the Anderson shaft so I could snug it down more since it used 2 washers. And it does get much tighter without the feeling of breaking bolt.
  8. Here is a couple pics of my stock Deus 2 lower shaft and inner coil ear. That's beach hunting but only a couple times. This is why I purchased the Anderson shaft.
  9. Okay I checked my Anderson lower where it meets the coil. There is daylight using a flashlight between that divot and the coil between the ears and the lower rod. And since it's not being pushed against that divot if it scratches it a little bit with some sand down in there it's probably not going to hurt it much as opposed to like the coil ears when you're pushing the rod against the ear there could be constant grinding on that ear which in time would weaken it. So as of now I'm not changing anything I don't see a problem with it I can stick a piece of paper in between there and it fits in there fine plus I can see daylight underneath it
  10. I was getting wear from the stock lower shaft of the Deus 2. It was on the non rubber washer side. I do have the Anderson shaft and I don't use the centering cone clevis whatever you want to call it I just use the rubber washers and the bolt because I want the rubber washers on both sides of the lower rod to be tight against the ears of the coil to make the coil is rigid as possible so it doesn't pivot. But I will check and see if there's any space underneath the lower rod in that little divot area if there isn't then I will go ahead and send a little bit of it off myself.
  11. The Anderson shaft has a great fit at the coil. Has adjustable mount for the remote to angle it for better viewing. Use any stock XP Deus remote mount. I'm 6'4" and the shaft is only on third adjustment length wise and has 5 more adjustments. Very solid carbon fiber shaft great for water hunters. Also the remote mounts flush to the hand grip making it much easier to .ake adjustments. To be honest I don't think any of this would matter if XP came out with a better designed lower rod made for water.
  12. Well my understanding is xp didn't want to put any pressure on the coil ears so they use one washer and use the little cone fitting to shove the lower rod over to sandwich the washer between the one coil ear and the lower rod. That way there is no pressure on the ears. Only on the rubber washer. It's a fantastic design for land hunting. But for salt water hunters and beach hunters where the coil needs to be tighter and more sealed at the joints then we'll a trailer brake is needed or a second rubber washer to help keep coil firmly mounted. I feel the lower rods needs refinement... Make it carbon fiber and make it have the trailer brake (second washer). If someone could just build a lower like that alone then it would be so helpful.
  13. So for the record here is the washer side of the 11 inch coil and the lower shaft. Zero wear. You would probably never have a problem. But as you see the non-washer side has them little cavities that probably holds sand and I imagine the coil ear is wearing near the bottom more because the sand will fall out the bottom first that's a poor design for salt water hunters. if one wanted to keep using that stock shaft then maybe use some JB weld and fill in them divots so sand can't be stored in there? I'm not sure what the answer would be or like gigmaster did and I also did it temporarily is use a legend or simplex lower carbon fiber shaft I may go ahead and pick up another one and do a little quick fix to get it to work on the stock lower shaft. But for now I'm just going to use my Anderson shaft for everything. And you can even see there's still some salt a little crumb of salt left in one of them little divots and that's after it was washed just spray it down it was actually stuck in there I had to take a pic to remove it for whatever reason it was just like glued itself inside that coil divot. It would be great if XP would at least offer a different lower rod with two washers for saltwater hunters or Beach hunters cuz you probably won't have this problem if you're just diving, or just land hunting. I would imagine it's always going to be the beach hunters that may go into a foot of water or so that's going to have the problem. So if XP is looking at the forms I would hope that they would maybe design a carbon fiber lower rod with the use of two washers ..
  14. Mine has some wear on the non rubber washer side ear. I salt water hunt and wash very well after each hunt. I have the coil as tight as I can get it without breaking something. The lower rod also has severe wear on the non rubber washer side. It has to be happening during the hunt on sand as I do wash unit very well after each hunt so it can't be wearing from lots of sand left behind while I'm land hunting . The coil moving just 1/4" can cause wear when sand is involved. I did buy the Anderson carbon fiber shaft and it uses washers on each side. I bought it because the washer side of the Deus shaft looked great . So I'm hoping I have no more wear issues . The shaft itself feels great. A couple small mods and it's ready to go.
  15. Also the factory case that connects to like a belt will work I've seen people using them and just let it hang off of their belt and when I get a Target they just look down at it and it's perfect
